Limelight Pictures

Halle Berry has sailed through her pregnancy looking nothing short of spectacular — now that’s a pregnant glow! But she’s not done playing around with her style just because she’s almost due. Halle stepped out for lunch in Los Angeles this week with a new ‘do — chin-length curls. From her pixie cuts to long waves, this is one star who’s proven that she can pull off any style, and this cute bob is no exception. We want to know what you think! Tell us: Do you love Halle with short curls? Or do you prefer her with longer hair?

She looks like Oprah’s younger sister!

Socialite Dreams on

looks like a nest, that’s awful!

Stephanie on

Even though I can’t see her hair from a straight on view, I’m sure it looks great on her, most styles do! I do wish she would go back to her short pixie cut, that was the best look for her I think – it’s my favorite. Not everyone looks sexy and full of glamour in short hair but she does, she has the perfect face for it!

Hallie on

Wow, if it didn’t say it was Halle Berry in the title I would have thought it was Oprah Winfrey.

Robin on

Horrible! Absolutely horrible. If it ain’t broke, don’t fool with it!

Hallie on

I love it! It looks so fresh and modern after seeing so many women with long, pin straight hair.

Ann on

Ew. She looks like an old woman. I like her with long hair.

Obbie on

Yes, I love it!

CHELSEA on

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HALLE’S NEW HAIR DO SHE LOOKS GOOD IN EVERY THING SHE ROCK PREGNANT OR NOT!!!!

An on

IT’s very beautiful on her. Her face it’s enlogated giving her a more defined look. She looks amazing. Hope her baby is as beatiful as both his/her parents.

Mary on

It’s hard to say, considering that she’s wearing sunglasses and we’re only able to see her side profile. But I’m sure she looks lovely, just the same.

stephennie on

halle berry looks goregeous!!!

Shannon on

Eeew! SO sad! She looks like an out-of-touch middle aged mom. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it myself. Just terrible!

chelleebean on

it looks great on her. she looks good no matter what she does to herself. ladies, don’t hate the player, hate the game. she can’t help it cause she’s BEAUTIFUL.

Jessica on

Well it looks like it might be cute. Its hard to judge by looking at a side view and with those glasses on.

Prefer Halle’s original short funky hair do1

Biggest Fan on

STOP HATING! Halle is the most beautiful woman alive. Hair or no hair, short or long, she looks better than anyone you know, now doesn’t she? STOP HATING!

LT on

I take or leave the hair…but I’m loving the henna on her right hand…wondering what that’s about…?

datylers on

SHE REALLY LOOKS A HOT MESS THAT HAIR IS NOT FOR HER

krista on

i’m not feelin’ it. stick with straight or wavy. of course she could go bald & still look good

lencia on

give halle berry a break! her hair may be somethinhg that were not used to seeing,but she is expectating and sometimes looking like a model is the last thing on your mind while your body is going through changes.

Anonymous on

She always looks good.

CC on

Halle Berry looks beautiful. Her favorite hair cut to me was the short pixie cut. I like that fact that she’s still a trend setter even while she’s pregnant.

rashundra on

i love it. & there is NOTHING wrong with looking like oprah.

Jo on

I think Halle was much better with long curls. Since she’s pregnant, even if it’s not that much, she’s gained some extra pounds and definetely this new haircut doesn’t help uncovering it (puts more volume in the face that is already large). It seems that she got older also. That’s a big not!

chives on

OMG. I LIKE HER SOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER WITH LONG HAIR! I MEAN, COME ON HALLE! LOL <3 YA GUYS!

Anonymous on

HATE IT!!!

Nolan on

Looks like a cheap wig. Didn’t recognize her. She usually has good taste, but not this time.

smith on

no, not really, to much like Oprah.

Jen V on

I think it’s funny almost everyone has mentioned Oprahs style. That’s exactly the first thing that popped into my mind. I love the look on Oprah, but not sure about Halle. I’d have to see it from the front.

Carrie on

Halle can pull of any hair style she wants she is still a beautiful woman and mother 2 be.. But I think she’d look much better in her long locks….

amominred on

Halle is a stunningly beautiful woman who can wear her hair in any style and look fabulous but this is not my first choice for her (like she cares, right?!). It reminds me of my first pregnancy when I went short and “back to natural”, thinking I was going to be a sexy mama who saves money and time at the hair salon. Didn’t work out too well for me and I don’t think it was the best choice for Halle, either.

lola on

Horrible!!!

lola on

Horrible!!!!!!!!!!

Amy on

Love love love it!!

Tammy Marshall on

I think Halle looks great with the shortbob.
But I also thinks she looks better with short hair period.

Ashley on

Halle Berry is gorgeous! The short hair is cute on her, come on now, she’s pregnant and long hair would make her sweat, she’s got those crazy hormones!

Micheline Foxxe on

It’s a wig!

Leslie on

She looks great! I love it. Very fresh and new. She would look great no matter what she did with her hair anyway.

tonya on

i do not like it.she looked better with long hair

KAT on

RATS NEST! LOOKS HORRIBLE!!

Donna on

It doesn’t work for me. I agree with Stephanie. I loved the short pixie cut. I think it’s her best look too. However, if you look like Halle, what wouldn’t look good on you.

yen on

she looks good with whatever she does.

Beckycool on

She look’s much better with the straight hair

SMG on

Halle looks great in most styles and if this was a better picture she’d probably look great in this one as well. My personal favorite is the pixie cut.

Sonia on

I love it! She looks absolutely gorgeous and this style is very IN at the moment.

XRG on

She looks good in anything, but I suspect she went to this look because it’s easier to take care of, now that she’s very pregnant and about to be a mom. Way to go Halle!

Sunny on

I hate it! she does look like Oprah.

clvrock on

Not the best choice of hairdo. I like her when her hair is straight and she has it tied back or loose. She is a beautiful woman. What was she thinking when she decided to have this one?

Tasha on

I LOVE IT AND HATE IT!!

coworkers on

we don’t like it!

lisa on

YUCK!!!!!!

M on

What’s on her hand?? A tattoo? I’ve never seen that before…
The hair is awful.

SL on

The henna on her hand makes it look like she recently attended a Mehndi – often held just before Indian weddings. Let’s hope she is just overly done-up for a special occasion, it’s a bit much for everyday.

t on

she also has henna on her hands

michelle on

I thought she was Whitney Houston until I read the article. Not so becoming if you ask me.

c brown on

she looks good, she can do almost anything with her hair and she still looks good. stop hating…..

Nichole on

That type of due is rarely flattering on anyone if you ask me. It ages her and quite frankly she looks like she is playing gumshoe dress-up…I am hoping that is just a wig.

Trace on

She is VERY pretty, BUT she looks better with stright hair.

Stephanie on

I want to know what is on her hands? It looks like she has a tattoo of some sort- doesn’t it?

Joey on

nooooooooooooooooooooo…and what’s with the ugly tattoo on her hand. Yikes…I have to find another fantasy lady to dream about.

Melissa on

UGH!! That is hideous! I thought (hoped) it was a wig! Why would you do that to yourself??? Must be the hormones talking!! Absolutely hideous & disgusting. GROSS!!

debbie on

I think it looks very “fresh”…especially as she is pproacing the birth of her child I’m sure this will be more manageable…I love curls anyway…

Deb

slc on

I definately do not like the new style and what is that onher hand and lower arm???

Carrie on

Love it! Although that’s a terrible picture of it.
*Anything* is cuter than ironing!

Stephanie on

Wow i thought it was Rihanna at first. Im not loving it at all. But hey she is about to me a mommy and maybe that cut is low-maintance

luisa on

i dont really like it!!!

SoontobeMrs.Balbuena on

Yeah, from this side angle I dont really like her new hair do. I do how ever ask everyone else..

DID YOU NOTICE SHE HAS LIKE SOME SCRIBBLES ON HER HANDS?? Are they tattoos?

Renee on

gross, pretty girl but her hair looks terrible!!

Brittany on

O.M.G WHAT DID SHE DO!!!!!

Liz on

Her hair looks terrible. Go back to Long and straight

? on

Halle is beautiful no matter what her current hair style…she’s beautiful inside and out. For those of you whom seem to think she looks like Oprah you need to have your eyes checked; Although Oprah is equally as beautiful, inside and out as well.

Renée on

No way!!
I wish she would go back to her short cut

Samantha on

Halle looks fabulous!! she’s happy and it shows!!

Kathy Mitchell on

Don’t like it. I loved her hair long.

Anonymous on

Don’t like it as much as her other hairstyles. But I guess it’s an easy “Mommy ‘do” that won’t take up a lot of time to style once her bundle of joy arrives.

Nancy S on

dont really like it….:(

Erika on

Awful…I hope it’s a wig!

chigal on

Say it isn’t so Halle! What’s with the mop top?
But then again, she looks great any which way…..

Anonymous on

I just ove Halle’s signature short cut. It looked great on her and she needs to go back to it.

Jade on

I LOVE IT, IT IS ABSOLUTELY DARLING ON HER!!!!!!!!!

Jennifer on

I liked her hair long, looked much better then the short curly style- Sorry!

emma on

Fun!! love change!!!!

Patricia on

I really like it. It compliments her face.

killakali03 on

I dont’ really like it I think it ages her a bit, and makes her look a little outdated. But and this is a big BUT I bet you it’s easy to take care of which at this point in her pregnancy is all that really matters. Many African American women during pregnancy go for braids so this look is a refreshing change from what I typically see.

Raya on

She looks good in everything, but her BEST look is the short do. Hey what’s with the henna on her hands?

Rebecca on

Love it! I’m also tired of seeing the same straight hair on everyone and I’ve always loved curls. This looks more natural on Halle, younger too.

regina on

oh my god! where is that catwoman????
nooooooooooooo, to my mind that never suits her. I wish she has her curlies

Anonymous on

Ugh! She’s bought into the trap that mothers need to have low maintenance. By keeping her hair long, she would have had the option to pull it up in a bun when time is limited and wear it long and lux for a special night out (or in) with hubby.

Diane on

It’s hard to tell what it will look like after she’s had her baby, it may be cute then, but now with her round tummy and the round shape of the cut, it just isn’t working.

sharon on

I hate it!

Neicy on

She looks great. I love it!

Mary on

Oprah’s little sister! Ha, Ha – I thought she reminded me of someone. I don’t like it and usually I think she looks so great.

Anny on

Horrible! Absolutely horrible. If it ain’t broke, don’t fool with it! I Can´t belive it

Laura on

I absolutly love it, I think she looks gorgeous!

Darla on

It looks fabulous. Radiant as usual. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!

Elena on

I think any hair style looks great when we talk about nice person

Pam on

Love it — she looks great in any hairstyle

TATA on

It looked cuter before, I don’t like it. eeelll!!

Sandy on

She looks totally ridiculous!!!! What the heck was she thinking?????

Corliss on

I think it’s looks wonderful on her. She keeps her look fresh.

Nsonta on

I love her hair do, she looks pretty as always.

Allison on

I love her hair both ways. She is so beautiful!

Cindy on

She is a gorgeous woman however, I don’t like this cut on her. It makes her head look too big. I understand she needs to have something that is low maintanence but this definitely isn’t the one. One thing about hair it does grown out so you can try something else later.

Kathy on

I love it! It looks great and it will be easy to manage as a new mom. Halle looks fantastic.

hannah on

for being a new mom, that just makes her look older.

i liked her old hair better.

Rosa on

Ms. Halle looks great! She is one of those women that can make combat boots look like Manolos.

cathy ocasio on

I ABSOLUTELY JUST LOVE HALLE’S NEW HAIR STYLE. MY HAIR IS CURLY JUST LIKE HALLES AND WHEN HER HAIR WAS VERY SHORT AND PUNKED UP ON TOP, I CUT MY HAIR JUST LIKE HERS. EVERYONE LOVED IT ON ME. WHEN HALLE GREW HER HAIR REALLY LONG, I DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL. I HAVE RECENTLY GREW MY HAIR SHOULDER LENGTH, BUT HAVE A BOB NOW AS WELL. WHEN I SAW THIS NEW STYLE ON HALLE, I WAS SO EXCITED BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER SAYS, I LOOK JUST LIKE HER AGAIN. SHE IS A VERY, SPECIAL AND SINCERE WOMAN, AND I WISH HER ONLY THE BEST ALWAYS. KEEP THE BOB HAIRSTYLE HALLE!! YOU ALWAYS LOOK GREAT!
BEST WISHES ON YOUR BEAUTFUL BABY………..
LOVE, CATHY

claudia on

It is not flattering in the least and the style ages her. Her features are much too delicate and feminine for such a clownish style.

Kat on

Awful photo of her, but Halle’s hair is goooorgeous! I agree, straight has been worked to it’s limit… time to lighten up with some curls!

Marie on

Absolutely love it.Whish I had the same stylist and the money to do that with my curly hair. She looks radiant.

Monica on

What doesn’t look good on her?!?!?!?!!!!

krazymom on

I Love It! Change is good!Everyone does not need to wear stick straight hair.

Kara on

I think she looks absolutely stunning!

Very sexy woman and will be one HOTT Mama.
Maybe this look just works for her at the moment. She is gonna have a beautiful baby soon.

I wore a ponytail while carrying my 3 miracles.

ONE WHO KNOWS on

IT IS A WIG!!!!!!!!!!
YOU MEAN TO TELL ME YOU THOUGHT SHE CUT HER HAIR???
AWWWW, C’MON!
A WIG IS A PREGNANT WOMAN’S VERY BEST FRIEND!!~!

SO….RELAX, YOU WILL SEE HER REAL HAIR SOON!

Georgette on

I THINK SHE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL~~~GOD BLESS HER AND HER NEW BABY~

Bridget Demery on

Hallie is such a beautiful woman and this do does her no justice. I love her natural beauty and now her hair looks like a rat’s nest.

Cindy on

I love curls, more in style than the flat-ironed hair…..jsut needs to be a bit longer, to the shoulders at least to keep from looking so “middle-aged” school-teacher-ish.

katelin on

i don’t really like it all that much…but she is such a pretty lady she can pull it off.

RS on

She looks more like Opera’s Winfrey’s twin sister!

mada on

Halle looks gorgeous with her hair curly! She has naturally curly hair already and this is more defined! It’s a nice break from the straight and shows some diversity! Love it!

Stephanie on

I absolutely hate it.

Mary Beth on

She looks fabulous! She looked great before, but it’s a nice change. Something new and fresh! She’s very beautiful!

Holly-T on

Halle Berry is gorgeous!! Any hair style she has looks great on her. And the pregnancy glow is an added bonus!!

Lainie on

Looks very Sex and the City, “Carrie” 4th season. And aside from being a black woman, she looks nothing like Oprah Winfrey

Ashley on

Her hair looks beautiful! Curls are something to show off, a really fresh change for her!She looks happy and stunning!

monika on

WHO EVER SAYS THAT HER HAIR LOOKS BAD NEEDS TO TAKE A LOOK AT THEM SELVES!!! HER HAIR LOOK GREAT ON HER! SHE IS STILL BEAUTIFUL….STOP HATEIN’!

casey on

I love halle berry and her hair its so cute

casey on

I love it

Desiree on

“Halle is Halle” – She would even look great with a ball head! New hair do just SPLENDID!
